Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and is a great way for us bloggers to share upcoming novels we can't wait to read.
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publish Date: October 2, 2012
Genre: Middle Grade
When Liza’s younger brother Patrick’s soul is stolen by the evil Spindlers, spider-like creatures who live underground, she knows she must set out on a heroic quest to the world Below to rescue it.
Ok, so some might be asking: "Dan. As a twenty-something male, your waiting on wednesday is, um.... buh-huh?"
And I would be answering: "Shut your face. Lauren Oliver is straight genius, yo."
My opponent: "But, this looks like a kids book."
Hero: *Gives a patronizing sigh* "Middle grade."
Jerk: "Um, ok Dan. I'm going to get going now."
And then I would hand them a copy of Lauren Oliver's last middle grade book, "Leisl and Po" and they would get sucked into the whimsical fantasy and shed happy tears whist being whisked away on a heart-wrenching adventure...with a ghost... and then get it.
And Lauren will be signing at the BEA next month and I REALLY REALLY want a signed ARC of this. REALLY REALLY.
So what about y'all? What are you waiting on?
